American Girl Doll Elizabeth Summer Skirt and Jacket

Difficulty level: ** Easy

Free Doll Skirt and Jacket Crochet Pattern

The Elizabeth Summer Skirt and Jacket is a fashionable 2-piece outfit. Depending on your pick of colors, it can work as both a casual and a more formal outfit. Both skirt and jacket are crocheted seamlessly from the top down. I decided to work the jacket with stripes in 2 colors, though you can easily change the number of colors and size of the stripes to suit your taste. It features a sc finish all around.

For the skirt, I chose to go a slightly different route. Rather than switching colors, I changed textures, adding 4 rows of eyelets. The top row of eyelets can be threaded with a cord or simple crocheted "belt".
